The Indiana House Ethics Committee Monday dismissed a complaint made against House Speaker Brian Bosma (R-Indianapolis).
The complaint stemmed from an Indianapolis Star report that a former legislative intern – who claims she had an affair with Bosma more than two decades ago – accused the Republican lawmaker’s attorney last year of intimidating her and her family and friends.
Because that attorney was hired with campaign funds, former Rep. Linda Lawson (D-Hammond) filed an ethics complaint against Bosma.
The House Ethics Committee brought in an outside attorney to help investigate. But a letter Monday from the six members of the committee – three Republicans, three Democrats – says there’s no reasonable cause to support the complaint.
The Indiana Elections Commission also previously dismissed a complaint over the allegations.
